Why you mad bro? You don't think it fits the theme of the nation?

Yes, they do. The theme of the nation appears to be "be exceptionally generic" and also of a low power level. The thing about the extra gods is that they're contending against the other gods, and they're pretty much strictly weaker than any of the others.

The gods are one of the things I'm most happy with. You do realise they are 0 point gods? The whole nation is meant for people who don't want overpowered stuff. I think they are good value for 0 points anyway, besides being fun. For instance the Firbolg makes a really nice awake general. No magic and dominion 10 made for a very interesting game. The Adventurer is also a good budget god. A handful of points gets him useful level of magic (say fire 4) so he can support the opening armies with just a few levels of research in evocation.

You did realise that he has a magic weapon for self defence, some zero encumbrance armour, very low inherent encumbrance and an autocasting twist fate? At 20 points / magic path I think he's an interesting alternative for an archmage pretender.

Makes sense.

I dont see it much for MP. But I would like to see it white-flagged and duplicated to fill all of the empty nation slots. That way I could use it in Solo play to provide an interesting twist. Turning on as many as I want to have the "independent" provinces castled and active.

It's a good idea Gandalf. Mabye a few variants with different magicians even.

But for the record, I'm so going to play in the next Middle Age multiplayer match we have, unless somebody else wants it instead. Having to work with real human troops is much more fun than overpowering people with cheese

Has anybody dared to try this in a PvP game? I'd love to hear feedback.

I discovered a mistake I had made. One of the mistresses of the elements has the wrong magic path. I'll fix and update the mod ASAP.
